Business Case: Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Cardiac Imaging
According to the world Health Organisation (WHO), cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death across the globe. Cardiac image data, together with other tools, is used in the diagnosis of cardiac disease and disorders. It is now possible to apply AI algorithms to the cardiac image data in order to predict disease progression, as well as, uncovering new patterns and thus furthering clinical knowledge in this medical area.
There are now efforts to collect huge amounts of such images and share them with other medical professionals, eg. the euCanSHare project is in the process of “developing a data sharing and analytics platform to facilitate access to large-scale cardiac imaging and non-imaging data from multiple centers (www.eucanshare.eu)”.
Furthermore, experts in AI are publishing and reviewing the best AI methods for cardiac imaging. Other authors are writing on the challenges of using algorithms in this area including data protection, patient permission and AI regulation.
Source linked to title above: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fcvm.2020.00137/full Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine have produced a special issue which discusses six applications in the area of AI in cardiac imaging. See image below.
1. Read the editorial article at https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fcvm.2020.00137/full
2. Choose one of the areas of application from the image on the previous page.
3. Introduce the application area, eg. image reconstruction. (200 words, 5 marks)
4. Explain what sort of unstructured patient data could be used by an algorithm in the area you chose, eg. ultrasound images used in image reconstruction to detect anomalies. (200 words, 7 marks)
5. Discuss best practice and options for accessing, storing, sharing, documenting and maintenance of the patient data. (400 words, 15 marks)
6. Propose a question that could be asked in relation to your unstructured data and what software might help you to run AI and answer the question. (200 words, 4 marks)
Make sure you have at least ten references. The KBS library is a good place to start. Use Harvard formatting. (4 marks)

Word Limits for Written Assessments
Submissions that exceed the word limit by more than 10% will cease to be marked from the point at which that limit is exceeded.
Students may seek study assistance from their local Academic Learning Advisor or refer to the resources on the MyKBS Academic Success Centre page. Click here for this information.
Students must submit their individual analysis as a Microsoft Word document via Turnitin on Monday of Week 10 at 23:55pm AEST. Students are also encouraged to submit their work well in advance of the time deadline to avoid any possible delay with Turnitin similarity report generation or any other technical difficulties.
Late assignment submission penalties
Penalties will be imposed on late assignment submissions in accordance with Kaplan Business School’s Assessment Policy.
Number of days Penalty
1* - 9 days 5% per day for each calendar day late deducted from the student’s total Marks.
10 - 14 days 50% deducted from the student’s total marks.
After 14 days Assignments that are submitted more than 14 calendar days after the due date will not be accepted and the student will receive a mark of zero for the assignment(s).
Note Notwithstanding the above penalty rules, assignments will also be given a mark of zero if they are submitted after assignments have been returned to students.
*Assignments submitted at any stage within the first 24 hours after deadline will be considered to be one day late and therefore subject to the associated penalty.
If you are unable to complete this assessment by the due date/time, please refer to the Special Consideration Application Form, which is available at the end of the KBS Assessment Policy:
